After leaving yesterday’s game against the Rockies with a right groin strain, Padres second baseman Jedd Gyorko has been placed on the 15-day disabled list.
Gyorko is the second member of the Padres’ infield to hit the disabled list in the past week, joining first baseman Yonder Alonso. The 24-year-old rookie is batting .284/.341/.461 through 60 games this season. After getting off to a bit of a slow start against major league pitching, he’s hitting .309 with all eight of his home runs since the start of May.
Padres manager Bud Black told Marty Caswell of The Mighty 1090 in San Diego that the club is hopeful that Gyorko will be ready to return when he’s eligible, though it’s too soon to say for sure. Logan Forsythe was activated from the 60-day disabled list to replace Gyorko on the active roster and figures to share playing time at second base with Alexi Amarista.
